Events at the Crocker

Join us for an upcoming fundraising event at the Crocker, and support the Museum's mission to provide arts experiences for people of all ages.

Crocker Holiday Artisan Market

Join us Thanksgiving weekend, November 25, 26, and 27, 2022, at the Scottish Rite Center. Now a Northern California holiday tradition, this three-day bazaar at Sacramento’s Scottish Rite Center delights art lovers of all ages. As children enjoy photos with Santa and face-painting by the Moonrise Pixies and Elves, adults can meet and speak with artists, browse booths filled with juried works in glass, textiles, wood, ceramics, paper, photography, art jewelry, paintings and sculptures, all offered in a variety of price points.

59th Crocker Ball

Mark your calendars for the 59th Crocker Ball on Saturday, December 3, 2022! Join the Crocker Art Museum’s Mort and Marcy Friedman Director and CEO Lial A. Jones, the Crocker Ball Chair Christine Dariotis, and this year’s Crocker Ball Title Sponsor Hughey Gentry, LLP for an exclusive, not-to-be-missed evening benefiting the Museum, one of the greater Sacramento region's most important civic amenities.

The red-carpet evening begins with a caviar bar and cocktails before the exquisite dining experience presented by Paula LeDuc Fine Catering, one of the nation’s premier high-end caterers. Dinner is followed by a spirited live auction of coveted items, exclusive experiences, and our important Fund-A-Need paddle raiser. An after-party in the Museum’s historic ballroom with late night bites and dancing rounds out the evening.

Funds raised help sustain the Museum’s programs for youth, families, and school children, as well as make art accessible to everyone in the community.

The Crocker Ball is currently SOLD OUT. To add your name to the waitlist, please email or call (916)808-7843.
